Well... not bad i guess

Ghostemane's new EP is not groundbreaking but also not bad at all, specially for a 3 track EP. It's also hella catchy. The problem is that he has changed his sound but his music hasn't improved. He basically took the trap rap elements out of his previous records (except for the fast rapping parts) and kept the metal screams and heavy guitar riffs and made a new record (just what his fiancee has done).

Favourite: Convoluted
Worst: Crime Time

Crash 'n Learn and Crime Time both go insanely hard, Convoluted has some cool ideas but unfortunately something about the mixes leaves it feeling flat
